Lineup Card: Rockies @ Dodgers 5-12-12


Colorado Rockies (13-18)
  1. Marco Scutaro (2B)
  2. Jonathan Herrera (3B)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  5. Todd Helton (1B)
  6. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  7. Tyler Colvin (CF)
  8. Wilin Rosario (C)
  9. Juan Nicasio (P)
Perhaps this is a routine day off for Dexter Fowler, or perhaps Jim Tracy is growing tired of the inconsistent and frustrating approach at the plate, in addition to the sloppy outfield play that possibly cost the Rockies a baseball game last night. One couldn't blame him for citing either reason individually. Put together, he almost has no choice but to start Tyler Colvin to see if he can gain some traction in centerfield. 

Also, slightly surprised Chris Nelson hasn't started either game after his two-hit performance on Wednesday. It still appears his days could be numbered, maybe as soon as Eric Young Jr. returns. We shall see.   

Los Angeles Dodgers (21-11)
  1. Dee Gordon (SS)
  2. Mark Ellis (2B)
  3. Matt Kemp (CF)
  4. Andre Ethier (RF)
  5. Bobby Abreu (LF)
  6. Juan Uribe (3B)
  7. James Loney (1B)
  8. A.J. Ellis (C)
  9. Aaron Harang (P)
